Susan Frykberg is a composer of electroacoustic music who often combines feminist ideas and theatrical processes in her work. She has created a number of “environments” in which stories (often mythological) of women’s lives are the “context” for her music. Since the birth of her son, Esha, much of her music has attempted to bring some sense of the momentous and awe inspiring nature of birth-giving (and hence motherhood) into her work
